    Hello from Texas

    Traded a 06 Buell Ulysses for a 08 Speed Triple last week. Put on some fork seals and brake pads, did a bunch of routine maint, and installed the TOD. Love this thing. My 16Vmax is still a little quicker but a completely different ride. Anyways I'm in far south Houston (Dickinson) of anybody wants to meet up for a ride.

    Good trade. You came out on the winning end IMHO.

    Cool color and best year.

    I strongly suggest:

    -Installing MOSFET R/R
    -Installing Sunline Shifter
    -Installing fork reflectors(to offset the inherent danger of the TOD)
    -Loosening that tight azz chain

    The chain is 40mm play. Do you guys run them looser? Just going by the manual. The R/R is upgraded already. I think I "upgraded" in the trade too. Somebody put in some HID head lights. I want the originals back.

    Oh and the difference between the arrow down pipe tune and the TOD was incredible.
